Admission Requirements

    IMPORTANT UPDATE: For students applying during the Fall 2021 application cycle for admission to our program with a matriculation date of Fall 2022, GRE scores are not required for the application.  If your UConn Slate application is flagging your application for missing scores, please contact slhs@uconn.edu.

     

    Our program uses a dual application – that is, you must apply through both the CSDCAS application portal and the UConn Slate portal in order to be considered for admission to the program.  Details on what is required in each portal or noted below.

    • In order for your application to be reviewed, the application must be listed as “COMPLETE” in CSDCAS.  This means all materials (e.g. transcripts, letters of recommendation, essential functions attestation) must have been received by CSDCAS.  We will review applications that are waiting to be verified in CSDCAS as of January 15, but all materials must have been submitted before the deadline in order to be reviewed.  You will know that this has occurred when your application status is shown as “Complete” in CSDCAS.
    • In order for your application to be reviewed, the application must also be listed as “SUBMITTED” in the UConn Slate application system.

    Submitted via CSDCAS

        • Three letters of evaluation.  It is strongly recommended that two letters be from college-level instructors.  Note that CSDCAS will only accept electronica letters of recommendation.
        • Two essay questions (completed by selecting from the four provided in the Questions page).
        • Official transcripts from every US college and/or University attended. This does not include transcripts for study abroad classes that are itemized on a US college/university transcript. Study abroad is processed in the same way as US coursework. (Transcripts from institutions outside of the US must be submitted for an academic credential review before being submitted to CSDCAS. Instructions on this process can be found here.)  Note that CSDCAS requires a transcript from each attended university in order to verify your application. 
        • Upload the Essential Functions Attestation to the Documents section
        • A resume outlining work and research experience.

    Submitted via UConn Graduate School Slate application system

      • Students must also submit an online application to the University of Connecticut of Connecticut Graduate School.  Instructions can be found here.
      • Unofficial transcripts from every US and/or foreign institution must also be uploaded to the application portal.  Instructions can be found here.  Foreign transcripts will require an original be sent to the Graduate School.
      • For those whose first language is not English, official TOEFL scores are required if applicant has not attended an English speaking university.
      • Note – GRE scores are not required for the Fall 2021 application cycle.
      • Note – a personal statement is not required
    • Observation hours are not required for admission, however we do look for applicants to have an understanding of the field of audiology and clear career goals to ensure that audiology is an appropriate fit and that the student is motivated to succeed in the program.
    • On-campus interview: Select candidates will be invited to an on-campus interview following the application review. The interview is an opportunity for applicants to share their experiences, discuss future goals, and add a personal touch to their application.
    • If admitted to the program, a background check will be required.  Drug screenings may also be required throughout your time enrolled in the program.
    • Accepted students must meet and fulfill all Technical Standards for Clinical Training in Audiology. (http://slhs.uconn.edu/technical-standards-for-clinical-training/)
